About the Book :

This book is collection of papers published, in recent years, by Professor K.B. Powar on varied aspects of Indian higher education. The papers collectively examine the basic concepts of higher education; evaluate the growth, development and future of the Indian higher education system; review, in the Indian context, some critical facets of the higher education system including the management of universities, autonomy and accountability, research in universities and internationalisation of higher education; and discuss, in depth, three key aspects of modern education, namely the financing of higher education, quality assurance and the role of distance education. The book in its entirety is not only a conglomerate of papers on various aspects of Indian higher education but also a conglomerate of concepts, facts and practices.
